john kerry. rice is making the rounds on capitol hill these days meeting with lawmakers who are critical of the comments that she made about the terror attack in benghazi that killed four americans. those meetings did not go very well or so it would seem from the comments from senators afterwards. senator kerry seems to be taking a different approach, staying out of the spotlight. asking supporters not to overtly lobby on his behalf. who is likely to get the job? angela mcglowan, fox news political analyst, marjorie clifton a arm toer consultant with the obama campaign and principal with clifton consulting. interesting thing, if there are to be, let's say president obama nominates susan rice and she is said to be his first choice. the guy who leads the hearings on the foreign affairs committee would be senator kerry. >> yeah, no, it is the irony of it all. kerry strategy staying under the radar probably is a good one. the only thing i think would be a barrier to susan rice's nomination would be the benghazi coverage one could argue is pretty unfair given all she did read a u
rice in her statement, she voiced support for john kerry as an alternative. listen to what she said. >> i think john kerry would be an excellent appointment and easily confirmed by his colleagues. >> interesting. how much self-interest is at play here? if kerry were to get that job, republicans could pick up his senate seat, right? >> that is correct. remember, scott brown picked up the kennedy seat in massachusetts and he lost it to elizabeth warren in the last election. so there is that scenario that if john kerry were to get that post, then that opens it up again for scott brown to pick up that seat. a couple of things. first of all, it's widely known out there that john kerry wants the job. but, of course, you know, the story we've all been talking about that susan rice appears to be above on that list. that's the first thing. all of this speculation about who could get that job and, you know, if he got that job then this person could pick up the seat in massachusetts, it really is all just sort of hypothetical here. the president has not put forward a nomination yet. there's a
that he has in john kerry and susan rice. and i do think he's got a little bit of a dilemma, but i know there are those close to the president that are telling him, enough of this. both rice and kerry are sort of hanging in the wind, particularly rice. fish or cut bait and do it soon. i've got to think we're going to see it in the next 48 to 72 hours. >> chuck, we are talking about the fiscal cliff here and basically, i mean, i know next to nothing about the fiscal cliff or the negotiations that are going on. is your sense that there's more going on behind the scenes than what we talk about or what's in the papers? >> you know, i love -- no. there's not. i mean -- >> you mean we're right? >> no, it's one of those -- it's amazing. i think we all assume oh, there's got to be real stuff going on. this is just -- and maybe this is an elaborate ploy, right, that the president and boehner said okay, we're going to do all this and then magically we'll bring it all together as everybody feels everything's going to heck in a handbasket. but no, there's not a lot going on sort of behind the scene
, and awful these senators have come out and also said that they thought that senator john kerry would sale through the nomination process. now some have speculated that that's because republicans want a chance at that massachusetts senate seat. the bottom line is that the rice nomination could be a bumpy ride, whether the white house wants to have that ride at this moment in the middle of the fiscal cliff, in the middle of everything else, i think is a calculation that they are in the process of going through. martha: it's interesting. we are sort of watching the formation of the second-term cabinet, and you see the goodbye that has come to petraeus and gates and others and you watch how this thing is coming together. we'll see this john kerry and susan rice are too on that team and perhaps hagel as well. we'll let you go and see you tonight on special report. bill: is the president sending a signal on flexibility when it comes to tax rates, or is he holding firm? remember this? >> i also believed everybody should have a fair shot, and everybody should do their their fair share and play by

of state or nominate her, rather, but some bad week with senate republicans on the hill whereas john kerry the senator from massachusetts had a very good week and it looks like republicans would confirm him for just about anything that the president wanted to appoint him to. >> morris, your picks. >> we'll let him appoint him to secretary of defense. my worst week is benjamin netanyahu. this guy has a real problem on his hand. you know, the u.n. situation, west bank expansion, picking the wrong guy for president. netanyahu, you've got a problem and you have to figure it out quickly. the best week for me is what i'm calling obama 2.0. the president is out there and this is new obama and gauge taking his message to the american people and strong leadership and expect more of this, more of an activist president in the next four years. >> okay. susan, how about yours? >> i think ambassador susan rice had a horrible week. not only, it started out with the best intentions going up to meet with these senators, but especially after a meeting with senator collins from maine, it just really went dow
